Trois Rivieres, QC. (August 8, 2011) NASCAR driver Pierre Bourque returned to the historic Grand Prix of Trois Rivieres in the #00 Mahindra TractorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dodge and expected a fast race car to battle the tough competition. What he wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t expecting was to also battle the elements as the feature event was held during a rain shower.
With perfect conditions on Saturday for practice and qualifying Bourque set out to test the limits of the #00 Mahindra TractorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dodge. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We had a little equipment problem and didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get out right at the start of the session but the car felt really solid right awayÃ¢â‚¬Â said Bourque.
